With the Nintendo Switch selling like hot cakes, people are wondering whatís next for Nintendo. Are they actually thinking about a successor? Upgrades? New accessories? At least one thingís figured out: the support. Nowadays a smartphone or tablet is left in the dust once itís 2 or 3 years old, but the Nintendo Switch will be well taken care of, it seems.

Nintendoís president, Tatsumi Kimishima spoke to Nikkei and made a promise that the company will fully support the device for longer than 5-6 years, which is the traditional life cycle of a console. Exact details werenít given on how to maintain the console viable for so long. Itís likely that around 2020 we may see a new model, maybe with some VR or 4K action, to counter the PS5.

Whatís sure that the Switch software will be kept on point. Nintendo could adopt a policy similar to the Sony and Microsoft one, meaning that developers wonít make games that will preclude the original Switch. In the meantime, the portable machine outsold the entire Wii U lifespan in less than a year and itís even threatening to break PS4 records if it hasnít already.

According to the official numbers, the console has moved 14.86 million units, compared to the Wii Uís 13.56 million over 5 years. Speaking of software support, I expect the Wii Uís support to be phased out soon enoughÖ
